CAPIC Workforce Development


Mission

CAPIC's Revere Gateway Initiative Workforce Development/Job Training Center provides local low-income residents with direct resources to assess their job skills, and referrals to job training resources. The primary goal of the program is to enhance the employability of low-income residents who are under employed or unemployed. The project addresses gaps in services for low-income residents; making necessary support services not only available to residents but more importantly accessible. The Center is staffed by an experienced assessment counselor, who has an established working relationship with the LARE Training Center and local employers. The LARE Training Center, a division of American Training, Inc., hosts DESE Adult Basic Education classes two times per week at the Revere Center, with 45 individuals enrolled.
